My blogging schedule is so messed up this month and I'm so beyond managing my columns. It's the last day before the month ends so I thought, let's finish it with some visual inspiration for my blog's artist of the month corner — which I have decided to rename into "Creative Corner" instead. Today's corner is going feature beautiful shots from British fashion photographer Tim Walker whose renowned works regularly appear on Vogue, W Magazine and LOVE Magazine.
I remember begging my parents for a bathtub in our home bathroom just so I could pretend to swim around whilst playing bubbles. Alas, during renovation, we had to remove the broken tub and replace it with only a shower head. Don't get me wrong, I love showers especially when I'm in a hurry but there's something special about owning a bathtub and the thought of wanting to relax in it. Without a doubt, I'd love to have a bathtub again in the future.
I never liked the idea of myself being emotionally compromised. But this is what I've been trying to get through for the past few months. Life in itself is pretty tiring; I have to survive, get a job and maybe polish the social skill that I barely have. I don't need to be pressured and overwhelmed by this intangible thing called feelings. I just want to undo things — just unfeel, you know? And sometimes, they fuel my depression and anxiety and that's not very good.
One of my favorite things to read or watch on YouTube would be an empties video where bloggers talk about products they've used up, would they repurchase it, so on so forth. There is something satisfying about seeing empty packaging because it takes a lot of dedication to actually used up a product. I personally am not quick enough to used up an entire product so it really amaze me when I see people who used up their products so quickly in a span of one year.
So you might be thinking: two posts of the same column in less than a week? Unfortunately for this post, I just have to write it down to get it off my chest. As I am writing this I am going to tell you that I have spent these past few days bawling my eyes out and feeling like a mess while having to support someone important to me.
A few months ago, I remember reading a meaningful blog post about love and relationship that got me thinking really hard about my own. The post, which can be read here, talked about how relationships don't last based on feelings but choices because feelings are not constant and building a relationship based on a shaky foundation is risky. As I contemplate on the idea, it made so much sense as to why I doubted mine during the first few months.
Introducing Whitespace — a column dedicated to cozy homes and interior design.
I hate my current working space at home, let's just get that out of the way. I've always dreamed about designing the look of my room and working desk space from scratch, with my own table and chair of choice and other miscellaneous extras. Since I am mostly in front of my computer, I'd really love to have a minimalist looking desk space — this is probably one of my #homegoals.
Back at it again with my second mood board filled with curated artworks, Mlkboard is a column to feature visually engaging artworks from various creative fields. This time, I am going to focus on food branding and packaging design. When it comes to gourmet, of course the taste is relevant but visually appealing branding and packaging design can really boost the attention. I don't know about you but a good packaging really does make me want to try a product out.
